I know Halloween costumes can run a bit expensive and so this week we will be posting 5 cheap costume ideas. Today’s is the classic nerd. Any button-down shirt will work for this look, whether it’s long or short sleeved. Wear a pair of khaki shorts or pants with long, knee length socks. After that it’s all about the details, hair and accessories. You can either wear a bow-tie or tie to complete the look as well as add assorted pens and pencils to your shirt pockets. Make sure your shirt is tucked in and the suspenders create the effect of your pants being higher than usual. For the hair you can either do two very high pigtails or braids, the higher the better. The final and very stereotypical thing to finish the look, are your typical nerd glasses, and as you probably know, 3D glasses work just fine. Your nerd outfit is now complete! Don’t forget to pull on those suspenders, fumble with your glasses, and add in an occasional snort.
